Vitamin levels in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

Takeaway

  • Reduced levels of vitamins B2, B9 and C were observed in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients versus healthy controls, whilst vitamins A and E were significantly increased.

Why this matters

    This study has improved our understanding of the vitamin alterations in patients with ALS. Armed with this knowledge, changes in diet could be recommended in the future for these patients.
